Fallout Boy is the sidekick of Radioactive Man. He first appeared in Radioactive Man #9. He is also a member of the Superior Squadron.


Rod Runtledge was an average bookworm, until one day he met billionaire playboy Claude Kane III (Radioactive Man) at a radioactivity convention. A tall piece of machinery fell towards them. Claude grabbed Rod and jumped over the rail, Claude holding onto the machine. The machine came to life, and as the ray passed through Claude, it hit Rod. Rod received a pint-sized version of RM's powers, and became Fallout Boy.

Publication and media history[edit]

Fallout Boy appeared both the black and white TV serial, played by Buddy Hodges, and the camp 1960s and 1970s TV show.

Milhouse van Houten was chosen to play Fallout Boy when a Radioactive Man film was being filmed in Springfield. However, Milhouse snapped under the pressure and quit, being replaced by Mickey Rooney, before the project was shelved.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

When a pop punk band from Chicago, who are now known as Fall Out Boy, was playing at a local concert, they asked the audience for a suggestion for a band name. Somebody screamed Fallout Boy. The band chose the name and stuck with it. In many interviews, the band says how the name "Fallout Boy" was an idea from a fan and is a superhero sidekick from The Simpsons.
